Ways of a Child
Lesson of the hourglass

Hail Gnomes and children of the world
Whose consul is in the dust of the Earth
Hold sacred the ground on which we stand

Hail the fairy Syphls of Air
Whose voice is heard on the Summer breeze
Lend sweetness to the air we breathe to say the rite

Hail Nyriads of water
Whose droplets of rain cool the world
Fill the Chalice of the rite with thy bounty

Hail Salamanders of Fire
Whose flames Light the summer night
The incense burns in thy light

Seek on the wind
the answers to your questions
 With open ears to hear the voices

Fill your eyes with the flames
to purify the mind
While the salamanders dance delights

Become one with the Earth
to feel the beat of the world
T hat long ago we knew without seeking

Drink deep of the wells of wisdom
to use the consul well
That we learned to do before we could speak

Hail Mighty Mother
Your children seek your grace

The tension builds with each passing day
Of mans quest to find the way

Through the maze of the mind
we seek the truth
Mediation and peace and the ways of youth

Let us see again with the eyes of child
who sees all the world as good
Like the mind of a babe
Help us to remember were we once stood

Open our eyes to wonder
and the greatness of old
Open our hearts to the blessings
that once was easy to unfold

Boneless is the rest of a child
no tension of life's disquiet
May for the moment of the rites we remember
How it felt to quell the riot

To live each moment as it unfolds
The pressures not withstanding
As each moment we live is only now
Each second is life everlasting
The lesson of the hourglass we seek to recall
That life happens one moment at a time
Each moment is new
Each moment is now
Each moment is for living
The sands do not hurry

Tomorrow comes, but it will wait
While we live in the now of the moment
Let us remember the time when it was new
And relearn how to savor it

We learn great things in our quest for seeking
 Let us remember too the lessons we learned
Before we learned to be wise

Lift up your eyes in wonder
At the vastness of the night sky
Lift up your voice in wordless adoration
That you are alive
Lift up your heart to the wonder of Living
Lift up your soul
To become again a child of the Mothers grace
Blessed be

Whose flames Light the summer night
We thank you for you care of us
